Some SWEET Halloween Decorations

Happy Saturday, everyone! I had a lot of fun creating some cute Halloween decorations the other day, and I just couldn't wait to share them with you here. I used the new Candy Borders Cutting Files (which are on SALE this weekend) to create these sweet little decor items. 

I used the print and cut feature of my Silhouette Cameo to create both of these items. This would make it really easy to create several of these to use for a party or as gifts. I printed out a candy corn border and simply wrapped it around this LED candle and secured the ends using a glue dot. I chose to use an LED candle so there wouldn't be a fire hazard. I added some pretty twine and a cute sentiment (a sneak peek of one of the new Pretty Cute Stamps sets that is coming out on Wednesday). Then, I added some little enamel dots I made a while ago by melting Perler beads in the oven (the candle dish just seemed to naked without something scattered around on it). I love how it turned out, and I'm thinking I may need to make something similar for every holiday!

I also decided to create some fun little garland to hang in my craft room. I just separated one of the candy corns from the border in my Silhouette Studio software, created an offset for it (since the black background of the border can't be broken up), mirrored it (so I could have a back to the image), and created a whole bunch of copies on my mat. Then, I printed and cut them all out, glued them together...back to back, punched some holes in them, and strung them on that same twine I used for the candle. This was super fast and easy....again, another decoration I'm going to have to tweak for other holidays. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Don't forget about our Fun With Puns Challenge that is going on right now.  You can find all of the details HERE.

Have an amazing weekend, everyone, and don't forget to come back tomorrow for some more PPPR inspiration. :)
